LaTonya Yvette, was born in Brooklyn, New York with three brothers and one sister. It is the same place she now calls home with her daughter, River and her son Oak. She began her career as a stylist, where she often helped women and new mothers dress for their changing bodies and roles. LaTonya attended college for a BA in writing and literature, and later left to focus on motherhood and forge a path between her expanding worlds and roles. LaTonya just finished writing her first book, which will be released spring, 2019 with Abrams books.

This blog was initially a way to document the coming and goings of a new young mother, and has now grown into a lifestyle blog focused on the effortless combination of the visual and emotional experiences that encompass women in today’s world.. Currently, they spend their days running around the city, while working on various projects and sharing thoughts (possibly too many) on womanhood, parenthood, New York City, style, joy, and so much more.
